Thanks for getting us out of the house, very nice group you have and we enjoyed meeting everybody!!

Our Trip to HC

Rode with a couple ADV'rs to WBCDR on the way to Hells Canyon. We lost two in the process, one to Serve his Country (JungleMan) and one to KLR Woes (Rockyroad). S1Marks, PigPen and Asrvior ad I made it to rally eventually, but I took an extra day to dry off. Also have a few Hells Canyon pics to share.

Got a late start on Saturday due to some technical difficulties - no worries though were on vacation. First stop the Ice cave. By the 5th step you could see your breath, and that's with 80+ degrees on the top step. By the bottom step, it was icy as hell.


John's enjoying the good life.


First bit of snow, gives Gary only a slight pause.


Mark makes it up as well. We eventually got turned around by snow.


Eventually we made it to Packwood and camped at the Country Store RV Park, aka Mosquito Farm.


The next day the crew gathers along Bethel Ridge.


The little Yammi did great. Not a speed burner on the pavement, but plenty of power for the dirt roads and makes a great Pack Mule.


Nice camping spot at Lion Rock Lookout. The others guys should have some better pictures here - I think they took like a 1000 of them. Hard to beat the view from the Hammock! Too bad I froze my nuts all night long.


Lots of Burned Land, but it's coming back.


Few muddy spots on the WBCDR, but not too bad.


Good places to practice sliding around these turns.


Lake Chelan's campsite was right near a creek. Much better than my streamside radio at home.


Some late night firewood cutting was in order...


Not without injuries though.


Jessie is pumped for a great day of riding.


Gary taking a break


Bugville


Worlds most disgusting looking weiner. "Is that wrong?"


Coulee City campsite, you know, the one nowhere near the damn dam.


Had the pace to ourselves




From the Mountains to the Desert. Both beautiful in their own ways. Those clouds don't look good though. We are heading that direction.


Got separated the next day, and I ended up here.


Hid that evening in Walla Walla to hide from the rain, then toyed with climbing some little roads up to Tollgate. Chickend out with the slimy conditions.


Next....Hells Canyon.

Zumwolt Road Relic.


Met up with Squishy for a Ride to Dug bar along with OrangeYZ.


Camp creek road.


Joe riding in style.


Dug bar




Dug bar is a lonely place.




Time for a little offroading.


More offroading looking back to the route we took up there.




Hurricane Creek the next day.


That creek is really a waterfall coming down about 45 degrees.





Sorry there' s not more at the actual rally, but guess I was socializing too much. So here's a fitting end to my pictures.

Monday- My day one.
For me this years Hells Canyon/Wallowa Valley Gathering was an exceptional one filled with surprises, good riding and lots of fun. With so much to do in the area I chose to spend the entire week at the Log House RV Park on Enterprise, OR and make the most of it.

This year my good friend Rainbow007 (Becky) joined me for the week and I was pleased to be able to spend the time with her. We have been friends for more than 20 years, riding street bikes, snowmobiles, bicycles, dirt bikes and now dual sport motorcycles together. She’s much better at all of it than I am but I still have fun.

Rainbow007


We headed out on a geocaching ride with a side trip to a lookout.
First stop


I wanted to check out the old church.


Many of you have spotted this fun coffee shop and we took the opportunity to check it out up close.


All sorts of fun things to look at.


The outhouse is even fun.


We had to play with the blue banana
Rainbow007


Rainbow thought she was going to get a picture of me.


But I was obnoxious and took a picture of her taking a picture of me.


I had one of these when I was a kid. I didn’t have a bicycle but I had a tractor.


Time to move on.


Rainbow hot on the trail of a wild geocache


Motorcycle decoration


There’s a nice round barn out there.


After climbing a hill to get a cache we decided we needed to follow this road and find Summerville just because the name sounds cool.


But first I had to come down off that hill. The nice thing about wearing riding gear while hiking and geocaching it’s no big deal when you slide down a hill on your butt. It was easier going up than it was coming down until I gave up and just decided to use the hill as a slide.


Summerville, OR. It’s nice to know there is gas here. Too bad we didn’t gas up while here.


Not far from Summerville we found the Dry Creek School




It looked like someone started working on restoring it then walked away from the project.


The little shed off to the side had all these flattened Tab cans on the floor. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen those pink cans. Tab was my favorite way back when.


From there we headed to Tollgate figuring on getting gas and having lunch.


They are closed on Mondays so no gas. My bike had plenty of gas but Rainbow's tank is small so we needed to be aware of where we headed next. We had a couple ideas from there but didn’t know if they were good routes or if the roads were open so we opted for the shorter one. Before we did that we made ourselves at home on the bench in from of the store and had our lunch.


We were then off to go find a firetower and there it is up on the mountain.


We got about 1 ½ mile from it and found a locked gate. Oh well the ride was fun anyway.


Even being on the highway is a nice ride.


We rode a couple miles of gravel to Minam State Park thinking it might be a little used park but at the park things were paved and it was much busier than expected. It was a nice little side trip following the river though.


We crawled into the bushes and retrieved a geocache so we had that going for us.


Back at camp we went up to the teepee skeleton on the hill and enjoyed listening to the bird sing, and watched the sunset while overlooking Brian and Margaret’s kingdom.




That's a start of my pictures and I will have more later. Like always I took a lot of pictures and it's taking time to get through them.

Ken, Luke, and I headed out Thursday morning. A little rain on the west side but it dried out and was just cloudy for most of the ride.



ATGATT bike repair



Getting parts



The three amigos





Somebody has to be different



Fun time on Rattlesnake grade





On the road to Flora









I want to see Sherry's pic







It cleared up in the Valley, we would hit rain as soon as we hit pavement





Saturday I went for a little ride by myself

These guys weren't too sure about me.









Then there was the wedding
